The Health Professions Committee is an interdisciplinary group of faculty and staff that provides support for students pursuing health professions careers. Each student receives a Health Professions Advisor who specializes in their chosen field; advising begins freshman year. The committee provides workshops, career exploration courses, application prep courses, portfolio review, professional school representative visits, and committee letter writing.
